vegan[edit]

Section Politics says "Leto lives a vegan lifestyle and supports animal rights.[106]" citing a 2010 reference. However in this more recent interview he states that he is no longer a vegan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vfu2wczrsFE


Lord of War[edit]

There needs to be more in this article about his acting career and especially his role in Lord of War which would easily be his most prominent movie role yet.

Career[edit]

In section film it is stated Leto initially went to Hollywood to pursue a music career but it can not be actually verified because he has never stated such a thing before. So there is no reason to write such a thing as he was only focused on developing an acting career (what can be actually confirmed by the facts and then-interviews) and officially became involved in music when formed a band years later. It is completely unacceptable to include this in the article as long as it looks like a fiction story.

Better Early Life description[edit]

So I originally had this inserted:

"Jared Joseph Leto was born on December 26, 1971, in Bossier City, Louisiana, to Constance A. "Connie" Leto (née Metrejon)[1][2], of Cajun ancestry[3], and to Anthony L. "Tony" Bryant[4][5]. Shannon Leto, his older brother, was also born from this marriage. His parents divorced when he was a child, leading Leto's family to move frequently to different cities around the country, from Louisiana to Wyoming to Virginia.[6] "My mom's father was in the Air Force," Leto has explained, "so moving around a lot was a normal way of life." Even so, Leto's family was poverty-stricken and found themselves occasionally living in a truck or off of food-stamps.[7][8]
"Leto" is the surname of his stepfather, opthalmist Dr. Carl J. Leto M.D.[9], who provided Leto's family with financial stability; however, his mother and stepfather ended up divorcing too. Despite this, Jared credits his mother and stepfather for catering his talents and encouraging creativity within his family. Leto's family adapted the surname as their own, even after the divorce. Since then, Leto has been estranged from his stepfather.[10] Leto's maternal half-sister Jamie and maternal half-brother Mateo came from this marriage.[11] While Leto's father Anthony Bryant remarried as well, he committed suicide shortly after.[12] Leto was eight at the time of his father's death. Bryant left a son[1], Leto's paternal half-brother Matthias, from his second marriage. Leto's family then settled in Haiti[13][14] for a brief period while his mother volunteered at a rescue facility. Finally moving back to the states, Leto's family moved into the home of his maternal grandparents, Ruby Mae (Russell) and William Lee "Willie" Metrejon.[1]"

But it was removed multiple times on account of apparently not being sourced well enough. Can anyone find a source that will appease the admins? Everything in the paragraphs are undeniably true, but the lack of "adequate sourcing" in certain peoples' opinions would beg to differ. Additionally, I think it's relevant and gives a better understanding of Leto's childhood, as limited information has been provided thus far.

P.S. You can still find the paragraphs surrounded by "</>" 's embedded in the biography when editing. It just doesn't appear to the public. -- AlexanderHovanec (talk) 02:38, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
